Heat the oven to 350°
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Beat with a spoon until well mixed. Add the oil and beat until smooth.
Sift together the flour, soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into batter and mix until well blended. The batter will be very stiff.
I leave the pears unpeeled, but you can peel them if you prefer. Quarter and core the pears. Then chop into 1/2" pieces.
Chopr the pecans.
Stir the pears and pecans into the batter. This will be very stiff, but keep mixing until the pears and pceans are evenly coated.
Lightly grease a 9" x 11" baking pan. Press the batter into the pan, so that it is evenly distributed.
Bake for about 55 - 60 minutes. Check with toothpick - if it comes out dry it is done. The cake will be crispy on top, moist underneath.
